Sidewalk and Streetlights

by John Cougar




Homicide on the edge of town, and no one said it be easy
Sure has its ups and downs, and Garfield is laughing
Sitting in a dark room, making love with Sylvannia
No so called friends around, cigarettes and champagne

Gonna make me a big star, oh haven't you heard yet
Don't know how its going to go, too young to tell
And if its just my name, well hell I can change it
And if its for the fame, I guess I better grab it fast

But its just a dangerous game, that you're playing, oow
And you play it so well, so lets play it again
Sidewalks and Streetlights, sure make a pretty picture 
Strangers in the night, are you going my way 

You can drop me off at the corner, I can walk the rest of the way 
Its not that far to the nearest star 
And if its for the money, hey why can't I have it 
And if its for the glory, I guess I better grab it fast 

But its just a dangerous game, that you're playing, oow 
And you play it so well, so lets play it again, oow 
Lets play it again
